I’ve never used an iPhone, part one: Switching to the iPhone X and first thoughts

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

On a fall day over eight years ago, I walked into an AT&T store in Davis, my college town, to see the iPhone 3GS. I held it, stared at it, looked at the price card, then back at the phone, and then down at the price card again. Reality began to set in.

I was locked into a contract with my Sony-Ericsson feature phone for another six months. I asked about early upgrade pricing - $200 on top of the $199 AT&T already charged for the phone - but I was a student, and my meager checking account balance could barely withstand the regular on-contract price and accompanying increase in the monthly service fee.

Google is working on Fuchsia OS support for Apple’s Swift programming language

Monday, November 20th, 2017

Google's in-development operating system, named 'Fuchsia,' first appeared over a year ago. It's quite different from Android and Chrome OS, as it runs on top of the real-time 'Magenta' kernel instead of Linux. According to recent code commits, Google is working on Fuchsia OS support for the Swift programming language.

If you're not familiar with it, Swift is a programming language developed by Apple, which can be used to create iOS/macOS/tvOS/watchOS applications (it can also compile to Linux).

Samsung’s latest ad makes direct jabs at multiple generations of the iPhone, and it’s pretty funny

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Samsung seems to be angling towards a different type of ad campaign: one that makes fun of competitors' devices. We first saw this (indirectly) with Samsung's 'Screen Reviews' commercial, but this latest 'Growing Up' takes the roasts to a whole other level. Several generations of the iPhone are highlighted here, and it's really very well done.

The video follows a young man from the iPhone 3G's launch in 2007 all the way to the iPhone X's launch ten years later.

Android versus iOS software updates revisited: Two years later and not much has changed

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

Two years ago, I drew up a little comparison between the duration of software support for iOS and Nexus devices, and the differences were stark. Whereas Google only committed to 24 months of OS updates on its flagship phones, Apple typically updates their iPhones for up to 5 years after release. At the time, I was somewhat hopeful that things would improve gradually over time: Google had just formalized the 24-month update policy a few weeks prior, and we were already seeing a few devices like the Nexus 4 and the 2012 Nexus 7 that were being kept up-to-date for 34 or 38 months.

AirPods can activate Google Assistant on your Android device with this app

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

There are only a handful of truely wireless earbuds on the market that are actually worth using, and perhaps the most popular at the moment is Apple's AirPods. But unlike most Apple products, they actually work pretty well with non-Apple devices, including Android phones. If you're looking for tighter integration between AirPods and your Android phone, DotArrow's latest app will come in handy.

 

The app is called 'AirpodsForGA,' and it allows you to trigger Google Assistant by double-tapping on either AirPod.

AnyTrans migrates your data from Android to iOS better than Apple’s own transfer tool [Sponsored Post]

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Psst... hey readers, we know that a lot of you are keeping a secret. Based on the mobile browser data we have, we know a lot of you own iPhones and other Apple devices. We imagine some of you have iOS devices supplied by your employers and others *gasp* might have even bought (or are planning to buy) an iOS device for yourself because you wanted one. Here's a bigger secret – a lot of us own Apple devices as well (mostly computers and tablets), so we won't hold it against you.

Opinion: The iPhone X will overshadow the new Pixels, and Google needs a battle plan

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

Today, Apple announced the iPhone X to the fanfare of hundreds of members of the media, investors, and its own employees at a large event in the company's new purpose-built Steve Jobs Theater, housed within its brand-new mega-campus. Next month, Google will announce the second generation of its Pixel smartphones, alongside a handful of other new products, at what will likely be a comparatively small affair attended almost exclusively by technology journalists.
